Copic Color Card Reference....



Do you ever use the Copic Coloring Chart when deciding what colors to use on your images?  I ALWAYS do!!  Well... if you do, you know this is a full 8.5 X 11 piece of card stock.  I pull it out for EVERY card I do and look at every single color when deciding what I want.  AND... then I have sheets of paper with different hair colors on them and color blends, etc.  Enough, already!!!  I decided to take my little pack of index cards and put them all together!! My color image is by the Saturated Canary, "Ruffles the Clown".  

I started by cutting all the color families on my Copic Chart and pasting them onto my cards.

I added tabs to coordinate with the color family.

Then I added pages that showed hair color and skin color combinations.

And last, I added cards that showed the different combinations of colors I like to use together.  I tabbed all the cards for ease of flipping through.

Now I have this neat, organized and small compact booklet that I can take anywhere (even throw in my purse), sit beside me as I color and it's all in one place and quick.  No more messy pages of colors, no more dirty color chart with bent up corners!!

There is a lot of space left on each card to add more combinations and even extra pages in case I find combinations I want to keep track of later, like... colors I use for trees.. favorite flower colors... etc.

I hope this has given you some tips on how you might organize your color charts and choices.  It certainly has made mine a lot less messy and a whole lot more accessible!!  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!!  *HUGS*
